D. Jeffrey Burnham

“My mother was a medical professional, so I’ve long had an affinity toward the profession and health care providers. It’s always struck me deeply that these individuals are doing their best, day in and day out, and still they get hit with a lawsuit. I feel honored to help them through the process.”
